[BRIGHTCOVE "4628526804001"] A Christmas pop song is a special thing. Old or new, the right song can instantly transport you to everything you love about the holidays. However, not everyone loves the season for the same reasons, so we thought it would be interesting to take a look at some of the better-known Christmas pop anthems and what they might say about the people who love them – and what those people might love about the holidays.

Annie Leibovitz shot the last pictures of John Lennon before he was shot to death on Dec. 8, 1980. One of those pictures famously turned up as the cover of Rolling Stone, but another, more candid set of photographs of Lennon and Yoko Ono has turned up, and is going auction this week.

When Pharrell Williams strolled into the Grammys wearing an oversize Royal Canadian Mountie hat, it immediately became the Internet's favorite Grammy-night accessory. He also launched the official trend of the night on the red carpet and inside the Staples Center – lots and lots of hats.

As any Hallmark card can tell you, the holidays are about bringing people together. For some of us, that means reuniting with grown-up children, or welcoming long-lost cousins into our homes. But for musicians, it means something else: seasonal duets, often performed with the oddest of partners.
From reality-show novelty songs to stocking-stuffer EPs, Christmas isn't Christmas until two people who have no business being in the same room have crowded in front of the mic to sing a holiday classic. Why do they do this? You should just as soon ask Black Friday shoppers why they camp out for hours in front of big-box stores. Holiday magic is a compelling thing.

Ordinarily, that wouldn't be such a loaded statement, but given what happened December 8, 1980, Lennon's trip to Bermuda has gained a kind of misty-eyed significance.

"One day you will come to Montauk ... hope you won't turn around and go," Rufus Wainwright sings on the piano-driven ballad "Montauk" (from his latest album, Out of the Game) about his favorite seaside town.
On Thursday, friends and family flocked to the rustic beach community at the end of Long Island to see the singer marry his longtime partner Jorn Weisbrodt. And no one left early!
Wainwright, 39, and Weisbrodt, the German-born artistic director of the Luminato Festival, wore custom Viktor & Rolf Monsieur and were married by a longtime friend, the artist Justin Vivian Bond.

Though Paul McCartney and Yoko Ono have long been said to have a frosty relationship, John Lennon's widow has some warm words for McCartney's recent ex, Heather Mills.
"All I can say is, it's not very easy for a woman to be associated with The Beatles," Ono, 75, tells Britain's Sky News. "I think all the wives did suffer, and I think quietly suffer. Suffer but endured, I would actually say."
Moving forward, Ono advises Mills, 40, to "do her very best and try to survive".

Daniel Radcliffe is among several major names donating their old eyeglasses to an exhibit honoring victims of the Holocaust.
The Harry Potter, 18, isn't giving away his famous wizard character spectacles – but his first pair of glasses, an oval, metal-framed pair from when he was 6.
